Rivers Edge Elementary

Summary:

Rivers Edge Elementary is a highly-rated public elementary school in Glen Allen, Virginia, serving 748 students from pre-kindergarten to 5th grade. It is part of the Henrico County Public Schools district, which is ranked 77 out of 131 school districts in Virginia.

Rivers Edge Elementary consistently ranks among the top elementary schools in Virginia, with a 5-star rating from SchoolDigger. The school's students significantly outperform the county and state averages in standardized tests, with proficiency rates around 90-97% in mathematics and reading, compared to 64-73% for the surrounding area. This exceptional academic performance is likely due to a combination of factors, including a low student-teacher ratio of 18:1, a focus on academic excellence, and a relatively affluent student population, with only 5.45% to 8.56% of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. However, the school's high percentage of Asian students (around 67%) compared to nearby schools may raise concerns about educational equity and access to high-quality education for all students in the district.

While the nearby schools in the Henrico County district, such as R.C. Longan Elementary, Nuckols Farm Elementary, and Colonial Trail Elementary, also perform well academically, Rivers Edge Elementary consistently outperforms them in terms of statewide rankings, test scores, and other key metrics. This suggests that the school may have additional resources, teaching strategies, or other factors that contribute to its exceptional performance, which could provide valuable insights for the district and the broader community.

As you review the school rankings data, please be aware that some of the information from certain demographics is missing. The reason for this omission is that the data has been redacted from the source data itself due to low population samples in these specific demographic groups.

Redacting data from low population samples is a necessary step to ensure the reliability and accuracy of the results, as small sample sizes may not be representative of the broader population. Additionally, this measure helps protect the privacy of individuals belonging to these demographic groups.

About Students eligible for discounted/free lunch:

The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) provides low-cost or free meals to students in U.S. public and nonprofit private schools based on household income. Those with incomes below 130% of the poverty line receive free lunch, while those between 130% and 185% qualify for reduced-price lunch. The percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch serves as a marker for poverty, as it reflects the socioeconomic status of families in a given school or district. A higher FRPL rate typically indicates a higher concentration of low-income families, suggesting that the school or district may face additional challenges in providing adequate resources and support for student success.

About Student-Teacher Ratio

Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
